Larry Widner is the most recent winner of Milton-Freewater Rotary Club's Brag Board drawing Feb. 23. That makes him the newest Paul Harris Fellow.
The Brag Board generates funds that primarily support Rotary's Polio-Plus program to stamp out polio around the world, said Rotarian Robby Robbins.
Members pay $10 for one of the 10 by 10 places on the Brag Board in recognition of birthdays, anniversaries, special events, new births and so forth.
When the board is filled, a member's name is drawn to receive the Paul Harris award and the $1,000 is donated to the Rotary Foundation in the winner's name.
Anyone who donates $1,000 to the Rotary Foundation is awarded a Paul Harris Fellow, which includes a pin and certificate. The award is named in honor of Paul Harris, who founded Rotary.
Milton-Freewater Rotary currently has 46 Paul Harris Fellows.
